A Cozy Sewing Room with Charm

Good morning, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was one of those action packed weekends, full of family activities and chores around the house.  Not very relaxing, but necessary!
With one week left before my kiddos are out of school for Spring Break, I’m feeling the pressure to get as much done on the craft room as possible.  I have made some progress on the room and will have some pictures to share with you soon, but for now, check out this fabulous inspiration room I came across on Better Homes and Gardens website.  I love BH&G, it is jam-packed with inspiration of all kinds, I highly recommend you head on over if you are in need of ideas for any project.  Anyhoo, back to the subject, this article is titled A Cozy Sewing Room With Charm.  The homeowner has a sewing business and was in need of more space for expansion.  She utilized her family room; placing her sewing room at one end and keeping the other end family-friendly.

She used the same color-scheme in the entire room, giving it a unified, cohesive look.  The settee is prettied up using a twin size bed quilt and coordinating fabric pillows.  I love how she uses bits of fabric in the art display above the sitting area.  Don’t be surprised if this idea finds it’s way into my craft room makeover….

How cute are these pincushions?  What a great way to display them!

The inside of a cabinet door turns into a magnetic bulletin board by cutting a piece of galvanized metal to fit, then covering it with pretty wallpaper.  Love it!

Another cabinet was fitted with a painted pegboard.  A tension rod was used to organize the spools of ribbon and hooks were utilized for hanging fabric swatches and sewing tools.

Glass fronted cabinets hold folds of  fabric while labeled spice drawers organize sewing notions and supplies.

A cherry-wood sideboard is outfitted with file boxes for corralling receipts and paperwork.  Check out the magazine storage!  So tidy!

The bay window is dressed up with a pretty window treatment, while upholstered furniture in the sitting area is mixed with wicker and wood for a casual, family friendly look.

Check out the artwork on the wall!  Here, buttons are glued to a piece of fabric, spelling out a favorite word.  The fabric is then framed and hung on the wall.  I think I found another idea for my craft room….
